The picture painted by Cosmopolitan executive lifestyle editor Helin Jung is dramatic.
Here is how she describes the scene in New York today as TMZ’s docket-scoop began reverberating:
When news broke Tuesday that Angelina had filed for divorce, a roar reverberated through the cosmopolitan.com office among the ranks of Team Jen. I heard gasps, then cheers, from co-workers who had been wanting vengeance for Jen since 2005. What a sweet, sweet moment of victory. America’s golden girl gets cheated on by her golden boy husband, and over a decade later, he’s thrown to the curb by the other woman. Isn’t karma a bitch.
Jung is having none of that. The headline for her item admonishes: “Stop Rejoicing Over Brad and Angelina’s Divorce,” followed by an equally terse sub-headline. A separate cosmopolitan.com item, filed around the same time by Hearst digital editor Emma Dibdin, concurs, bannering: “Stop Dragging Jennifer Aniston Into Brad and Angelina’s Breakup.”
Perhaps, for this pair of Cosmo writers, drinks or a lunch are in order. And if Jung and Dibdin need a third, may we suggest The Huffington Post’s senior news editor of entertainment Leigh Blickley. Here’s her headline.
